  1. A dynamic, well-crafted combat flight simulator. The action is stunning, and the game is an absolute joy to play.

    The hook of the Xbox version is that the multiplayer missions are playable from the beginning, and new games like Tag and Detonator Drop have been added.
  3. One of the best, if not the best, console Star Wars space combat games to date.
  4. Starfighter SE will not astound you with mind-blowing graphics and innovation, but as a wise man once said, it's "a reasonably solid debut title."
  5. The graphical tweaks are nothing to completely disregard, but on the other hand, they're nothing for Xbox owners to brag about either.
  6. The jaggies are gone/ The framerate is much faster/ Still no Rogue Leader. [Haiku Review - Feb 2002, p.80]
  7. The ship itself is straight clunky. It feels like everything in the game is fast, except you. [Jan 2002, p.5]

    This game is pretty good. IT has decent replay value, but it is nothing compared to Halo.

    Die hard Star Wars fans will absolutely love the music and sound effects. The graphics are better than average but certainly not what should Die hard Star Wars fans will absolutely love the music and sound effects. The graphics are better than average but certainly not what should be expected from the Xbox.There is no sense of speed, (considering your in a starfighter!) but the gameplay and controlls are pretty decent.There is a good amount of things to unlock in the game, and there's also a multiplayer option.The game is worth getting and has good replay value, but it's certainly not a legend.
